Award for Teboho Edkins

Teboho Edkins has been awarded the main prize by the International Jury at the Oberhausen International Short Film Festival for his film GANGSTER BACKSTAGE. This award comes with 4.000€ prize money.

The jury statement on the film:

“Alternately intensive and tentatively cautious, this film, which is not constrained by genre considerations, explores the complex reality of a life on the edge, in which direct anticipation of death is part of everyday reality. As an examination of private stories, switching between centre stage and what is happening behind the scenes, this sensitively crafted work is an outstanding filmic portrait”.
